Turner Elevates PM & APM Positions
With a focus on leadership, professionalism and client service, we have revamped the Project Manager role to enable the most effective performance, site management and day-to-day decision making. An emphasis on training, technology and communication when it comes to planning & forecasting, managing tradeoffs and reflecting & reviewing, enable Project Managers to establish ownership and accountability for their projects.
“We have a higher caliber group of Project Managers than we’ve ever had before. I believe in their ability to push our company forward and exceed client expectations,” notes President and Founder Keaton Turner.
“A good Project Manager is someone who is extremely thoughtful about how they perform on their projects while building a culture of accountability and opportunity for their people,” adds Superintendent Matt McClelland. This is what we are striving for as we create clearer expectations for our leaders.
In addition to changes in the Project Manager role comes definition around Assistant Project Managers. The Assistant Project Manager’s role will play a vital part in each project’s long-term success and creating a culture of opportunity. Developing future leaders along their key responsibilities will directly determine our operational flexibility moving forward as our company grows and expands within the mining arena.
“We are currently re-organizing our internal systems and flow of information to get more control in the hands of the guys on site. They are the ones with the most visibility, so arming them with all the necessary information to properly manage is a great way to enable them to succeed,” said Chief of Staff Patton Deischer. “The hope is to unlock our Project Manager and Assistant Project Manager’s talent and potential while providing the assistance needed from the staff - this leads to faster development.”
With both of these geographies offering extensive opportunity for growth and impact on society, Turner Mining Group is excited to play our part and develop strong partnerships that will shape the mining industry.
